    Great people. Mature market. No corporate culture to speak of.

    Marketing Specialist (Former Employee) Minneapolis, MN

    ProsRimage has been doing the same thing for thirty years and, despite the market declining, they continue to get good results out of what they've got. Solid job, nice people.

    ConsI worked in marketing and there was not a lot of innovation in terms of how they presented themselves to the world, they're set in their ways and that's how they like it. In terms of office space and corporate culture they have a few get-togethers (mostly based around cake) but that's about it.

    Advice to Senior ManagementWork should make you want to show up in the morning, as it stands it oftentimes feels like "Office Space" day in day out the same stuff.

    San Bruno location is not your cup of tea for Engineers

    Senior Software Engineer (Current Employee) San Bruno, CA

    ProsLearn new technologies
    Good location, near to Youtube. Good restaurants

    ConsOne of the most horrible leadership in San Bruno.
    Engineering 3 chiefs + Indian politics = disaster

    Advice to Senior ManagementSee passion in employees who work hard. Give opportunity for everyone's opinions as they as investing their lives into your company.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Older line of business is rapidly declining, along with opportunities

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsGood way to get experience if you're in a lower level position
    Co-workers
    Benefits
    New line of business is growing, interesting

    ConsRapidly declining core business
    No future career opportunities if you work in the legacy business, management seems to have no intention of transitioning capable employees to the new line of business.
    Management focuses exclusively on new business to the detriment of old

    Advice to Senior ManagementTell employees the plan for ongoing employment in core business. We all know business is not going well.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Everybody treated their co-workers with respect, dignity and professionalism.

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee) Eden Prairie, MN

    ProsThe working environment was a positive one that fostered growth and teamwork. While individual achievement was strongly encouraged, the interconnected nature of the multiple levels of the organization reigned supreme. I've never worked with a more intelligent, competent executive corps.

    ConsThe only con I can think of is that the space in which the company operates is a fairly small space and one that isn't necessarily an exciting one. However, the company is aggressive in pursuing contemporary solutions and innovative processes.

    Advice to Senior ManagementContinue being fair, ethical and treating staff with respect and the company will continue to grow and thrive.

    Some great people

    Pros and Cons (Current Employee) Eden Prairie, MN

    Pros- Great people
    - Fun products
    - Very decent benefits
    - Management cares about the people who work for them

    Cons- Small, flat company means limited career growth
    - There is a growing divide between people who work on the core products and people who work on the new products

    Advice to Senior ManagementBe honest with people. If there's no room for advancement, let people know and let them move on if they choose to do so.

    Ok, but far from good

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsWork/Life balance is great and the culture is relaxed. Most people are friendly and willing to assist when they can. The vision is there for bridging the technology and company for the future. Need to exicute.

    ConsWeak management at the sr level and communication is not clear. Legacy personnel in many positions need to be top graded to assist this company to get to the next level. Comp packages are around the 50% mark for similar positions in the MSP market, you get what you pay for. Also need to invest some money in HQ building, as it's old, dirty, and has no character.

    Advice to Senior ManagementEvaluate personnel from a 360 degree view and Top Grade with stronger comp plans.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    If you need a job and to get some experience on your resume this place is okay.

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsNice co-workers, decent benefits, good location, good work life balance.

    ConsPoor executive leadership (the current CEO was canned from Seagate)

    No direction with a dying product. They are currently trying to compete with all the big players (Google, Apple, Microsoft, etc.) by developing a niche product for cloud computing.

    Very old and uncomfortable office. This is basically a start up, with a high failure percentage.

    No room to move. The job you take is the job you will stay in. They bring all of their upper management and leadership in from outside the company without even looking at talent within.

    Advice to Senior ManagementQuite being so arrogant, laying people off while giving yourselves full bonuses, and tell employees the truth when they sign on that the company is struggling and their is very limited potential for upward mobility. Rimage will die a slow death.

    Hopefully new management is bringing much needed change

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    Pros- Corporate employees have fairly flexible schedule and do not work long hours
    - Midwestern "Minnesota nice" atmosphere where generally people are friendly, very little office politics

    Cons- Top management has been ineffective and tyrannical, forced out many good people
    - Company has an arrogant streak that does not reflect reality of it's marginal products & service

    Advice to Senior Management- Speed up the pace of change
    - Clear out the 'dead wood'
    - Focus on the customers and the partners that matter and let the rest go away

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
